I first read this book when I was about ten years old. I loved it. It was one of my favorites and I would check it out of the library all the time. It is about a girl named Lauren who is an eleven year old gymnast, along with her friends. They all work out at a gym and have a hunky coach named Patrick, whom Lauren has a crush on. Lauren is dealing with several things in this book. She is helping her mother campaign for mayor, and she is helping her friends at the gym deal with their rival Becky. Lauren and her friends decide to campaign for her mother by making a commercial where they get to do gymnastics, but Becky tries to horn in on them, and nothing goes the way Lauren plans. She is afraid that Patrick doesn't like her and everyone is mad at her, so she runs away temporarily, but it all works out in the end, of course. This is the ninth in The Gymnasts series, so there are other books involving all of Lauren's friends and herself. But this one is my favorite!
